An unusual array of DJs, producers and vocalists are due to create an extravaganza of sound for Lancaster Speakeasy at The Dalton Rooms on Friday night.

The Chicken Brothers are a feathered duo playing swing hop, electro swing and vintage remix, incorporating turntablism, a theremin, samples old and new and plenty of bass.

Hatching from the Liverpool Speakeasy in 2010, The Chicken Brothers pluck the best mechanically reclaimed vintage nuggets and present them in a crunky coating of beats and bass.

In 2012 the duo played on stages at Glade, Beatherder and Festival Number 6.

Also on the bill is Edinburgh DJ and production collective Frequent Flyers, who since 2009 have been spinning their unique blend of club music at venues across the city.

They hold residencies at Axis, Confusion Is Sex and Spin!

They have supported some of the worlds top electronic artists and DJs as well as a number of up and comers including Adam Freeland, Nadastrom, Mighty Fools, Drop The Lime, Jokers Of The Scene, Freeform Five, A1 Bassline, Foamo, Grand Funk Dynasty, Paul Woolford, Clouds, Yolanda Be Cool and Greg Wilson.

Support comes from hip hop outfit The Fire Beneath The Sea, and swing DJs Mr Somuch, Odylic Force and Roc Vicar.

Entry is £5, from 9pm until 3am.

In other news, tickets for Glastonbrewery Music Festival, scheduled for May 18 at the Lancaster Brewery site, go on sale on March 1.

Already confirmed to play this day and night event are The Feud, Molly Warburton and The Shady Days, Joe McCorriston, Stopwatch Wilson, Fourth Time Lucky, Kassoma, The Ordinary, Cry Baby Aeroplanes and more.

Tickets for this year’s Beatherder Festival are now on sale, and tickets for Kendal Calling Festival go on sale this month, with line up announcements iminent.
